CHILDREN & YOUTH

We Welcome Children & Families to Plymouth 

Children of all ages are always welcomed at Plymouth! Children and youth are encouraged to participate in all parts of church life. We offer many programs and events throughout the year to foster faith development in children and fellowship among our families.  We strive to make worship family friendly, and each week you will find Busy Bags filled with quiet toys and Children's Bulletins that will correspond to that day’s scripture reading or special church days. During the school year, Sunday School for children preschool through 8th grade is a time to explore the Bible through scripture verses, stories, songs, games, crafts, and service projects.  The first Sunday of every month there will be no Sunday School to give families the opportunity to worship together.  Children learn by observing and participating in service as we come together to worship as a community of faith that they too belong in this place. Communion is also served on the first Sunday of the month and all are welcomed to the table. 

 

For our little ones we offer professionally staffed child care in our nursery, also located in the education wing. Caregivers are also welcomed to use the "Comfort Room" located in the balcony of the sanctuary, which is well equipped for families with babies and toddlers and includes a changing table

Safe Church Policy

The Children’s and Youth department (C&Y) is charged with making Plymouth a safe place for all youth, children, and C&Y volunteers.  Safe Church compliance means we seek to make sure there are satisfactory safeguards in place for any program involving our young people. Safety is at the foremost of our concern for the children and youth of Plymouth Church and we desire to build a church where all people feel safe and cared for.

Confirmation
Confirmands share a spiritual journey together as they discover the life of faith, both its cost and its joy. The Confirmation Program is available for 9th graders and older youth who have not yet been confirmed. Participants learn about major world religions, Christianity, the United Church of Christ, and Plymouth Church UCC. As part of the year’s activities, each confirmand is paired with a mentor (an adult member of the church) who is willing to share their time, care, and faith through a series of organized get-togethers.
